This paper explains that, while the educational systems of the United States and Israel share a number of commonalities in structure and ethnic strife, there are some fundamental differences between the two countries in terms of how education is viewed and for what purposes schools are intended. The author points out that the separation of church and state in public schools in the United States is virtually unheard of in Israel, but both school systems recognize the need to provide for a literate society in the future by providing students with a relevant and timely education today. The paper relates that the general effectiveness of the respective educational systems in the United States and Israel can be considered in terms of the national literacy rates, with both nations achieving high levels of overall literacy; in the United States, the literacy rate is 97 percent, compared with a slightly lower overall literacy rate of 95.4 percent in Israel.
